The midfielder doesn’t always get the headlines, but she massively deserved them after kick-starting Barca’s insane UWCL final comeback
What a game. What a game! The 2022-23 Women’s Champions League final gave us drama of the highest order as Barcelona completed an incredible comeback to win their second European title. The Catalans were 2-0 down to Wolfsburg at half-time, but it was they who hoisted that trophy highest after a remarkable turnaround.
Goals from Ewa Pajor and Alex Popp saw the German side start brilliantly, with their high press causing all sorts of problems for their Spanish opponents. But Barca improved massively after the break, and two goals in two minutes from Patri Guijarro got them back level in incredibly quick fashion.
From there, the champions of Spain had all the momentum and the third would come 20 minutes from time. Lynn Wilms made a mess of a simple clearance and chaos ensued in the Wolfsburg box. That it was one of their former players, Fridolina Rolfo, that made them pay with an emphatic finish made it all the more painful for the fans in green.
